Oh, What Joy!

This song is a song about the joy of knowing Jesus Christ; knowing his peace, grace, mercy, love, forgiveness, salvation from sins, as well as the freedom from the control of sin over our lives, his teaching, guidance, and counsel; the joy of sitting at his feet each day, learning from him, hearing him speak and then going out and obeying him, following his lead; and then finally the joy of knowing that one day he will return for us and we will be with him forever!
“At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other" (Matthew 24:30-31).
Oh, What Joy! / An Original Work / July 8, 2011


Oh, what joy! Oh, what peace

There will be when Christ you meet.

Oh, what love He imparts,

When Christ comes within your heart –

Saving you from all your sins;

Holy Spirit, now within,

Teaching, guiding you each day,

As you bow your knees and pray.

Oh, what joy! Oh, what peace

When you sit at Jesus’ feet,

List’ning to your Lord speak;

Obey Him throughout the week.


Oh, what grace He provides;

From our past we step aside;

Turn from sin; cleansed within;

Walking with Christ; died with Him.

He paid the price for our sins,

So our new lives we begin,

Living for Him ev’ry day,

Doing all that He did say.

Oh, what grace He provides

When we walk at Jesus’ side;

Follow Him where He leads,

Loving others; their needs meet.


Oh, what joy! Oh, what peace

When Christ Jesus soon we meet.

He will come in the sky

To take home with Him, His bride.

We are waiting His return.

For our Savior, our hearts yearn.

We keep watch in how we live.

To our Lord, our hearts we give.

Oh, what joy! Oh, what peace;

Live with Christ eternally!

Reign with Him; His kingdom;

We will be forever Home.
